That's it!

Loose the 'debug info' option and the "top of the screen" will not be pushed off to oblivion! The 'verbose' alone should give you more than you need!

Hi Zelda, when pronounced the letter GUI sound like Gooey but in text they should be GUI as nobody will make the association you spell it gooey. GUI mean Graphic User Interface. Thanks for the efforts on the books.

oh sorry about that ! i'll write GUI from now on. i just learned it is pronounced "gooey" in english and i think it's really funny, that's why i spelled it that way...

[EDIT i know it means Graphic User Interface, that's why i was surprised the first time i heard "gooey"]

a question about that : i put all my mobi files to be converted in the mobi2imp\bin directory in my system drive (where the .bat file is), but i have the impression that the "installer" doesn't so much "install" as "uncompress" the file...
NOOOOOOOO!

The installer is just a smart uncompressor! I assume (wrongly so in your situation and JSWolf's situation) that the home directory will be "C:\Program Files\Mobi2IMP". Moving the program, GUI, bin directory will most certainly break this setup!

The problem is that the 'Mobi2IMP.exe' in the bin directory (the work-horse routine!) is not placed in your path by the installer.

If YOU place 'Mobi2IMP.exe' in another directory in your path (or add "C:\Program Files\Mobi2IMP\bin"; to your path), then you can call the (recursive) batch file from anywhere! Just put the 'prc2imp.bat' in the directory where your .prc files reside (NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND. That is like "Letting the mountain come to Mohammad!").

Quote:
so, if i wanted to do this work on a different drive (i like to leave my system drive exclusively for my system), can i just move the entire mobi2imp directory ? or should i only move the .bat and .exe files to the directory with my mobi files ? or should i reinstall it to the I drive ? or ???
as above, I wanted to make it simpler for novices to use, hence, rely on a forced home directory for just the 'Mobi2IMP.ini' (remembered) options file. To move this to a different drive/directory, and use the GUI, you need to retain the Mobi2IMP and Mobi2IMP\bin directory structure and expect your 'Mobi2IMP.ini' to ALWAYS reside in "C:\Program Files\Mobi2IMP". This is hard coded into the GUI (as I couldn't get it to work otherwise)!

Quote:
as for "don't get me started" on BookDesigner program... seriously ! that thing makes some wacky code... what's up with the open <p> tags before the images, but no closing p tag... or the double tags like <i><i> (...) </i></i> ?? why ??

i've been following the thread about writing a new ebook creation tool, i really hope they do it...

in the meantime, i should have enough to keep me busy with eBookPublisher and mobi2imp...
I've got company on that anti-BD wagon....

well, since the original mobi files were made with BookDesigner sometimes there are odd things in the code. i'm not being very thorough today but in the output window of eBook Publisher there is a huge list of things i *could* fix, like open tags or text not inside a tag... and in addition, if i were being picky, for example, i should correct the paragraph indent, so that it is made with css and not several non-breaking spaces.

however, the books i am converting today are more or less readable directly from conversion, so, i am only fixing some small details :

1. add a "a name=TOC" tag before the TOC, for those people who like to jump back to it
2. change header to "smallfont" (personal preference) and remove the unnecessary bgcolor indication (since i chose white)
3. move image link anchors to *before* illustrations, instead of after (otherwise, if you click on the link, the illustration is not actually visible, it is on the previous page)
4. close the open <p> tags around the illustrations
5. fix the double <i> tags around the image captions with a ctrl+H replace all

(and 6. fixing the image sizes, but i think you mean specifically with the code).

if you want to see the output results, just do a conversion using mobi2imp and then open the opf file with eBook Publisher, and do "preview".

This is sometimes unavoidable when the image used is longer than wider and bleeds into the bottom. This situation can only be fixed by re-sizing the image to the device's dimensions or inserting width/height specifications within the <img> tag. Either way you loose the generality of the code and need to re-do this resizing for the other .IMP device (REB1200).

Likewise, I also like remove stray blank lines after "THE END". Nothing more annoying than reaching "THE END" and there being one more page to read; only to find out its BLANK!

ok ok calm down !! don't worry, i didn't set anything on fire !!

ok, now i understand. the first time, i placed only the .bat file in the directory with my .prc files (I:\austen), but when i double clicked on it, it told me it couldn't find "mobi2imp.exe" (one time for every .prc file...). now i tried placing the .bat and mobi2imp.exe (from the bin directory) in the same directory with the .prc (well, one small .prc, to test), on the I drive : seems to work perfectly.

[EDIT : ARG !! watch out, the batch file looks in sub-directories as well !!! and if you already re-formatted those other opf files, well, you can start over again from a completely new source code... thank god it's not any faster.]

currently, mobi2imp is installed in the default location (C drive) ; but i don't like to mix my system with my other files, that's why the books are on the I drive.

no worries ; now i think i have it figured out, and soon i will have written your tutorial for you

Can't you have mobi2imp do all that work for you? It would help for those of us who do not do such cleaning.

Jon, too many variables to automate this and you run the risk of changing something that you shouldn't have.

These stray blank lines take many forms '<div>&nbsp;</div>' or '<BR><BR>' or '<br /><br /></font>' or '<br /></span>' and so on...

I just visually inspect each '<p style="page-break-before:always">' to see if I should remove any preceding blank lines. It's tedious but safer!

The link to AFTER an illustration problem is not easily detectable since I do not parse the HTML code in Mobi2IMP. I think it would be hard to automate since I just gloably search and replace to 'fix' things!

In the end, it should be the preparer of the .prc (or BookDesigner program) that should fix these (broken) things.

Development Hub repository for Mobi2IMP operational!

Please check out the Development Hub repository for Mobi2IMP.

This repository will host the most current source, programs, and documentation as well as unreleased source revisions.

There you can fill out "tickets" for Bugs Reports / Feature Requests / Help Requests ...

I uploaded all my previous versions except for version 3 to 5, which were overwritten by version 6. Oh well, otherwise, it's pretty complete.

To have a look around is "free", but to create "tickets" requires (free) registration.

Did you really type in the above output by hand (as indicated by the bold above)?

If so, there is a shortcut, namely, when the dos box/command prompt window is open, right-menu click on that window, select Mark, then highlight the area you want to copy with the mouse (only line blocks are copied so start at the beginning of the line). When done highlighting, press Enter key and the contents will be copied to your clipboard. Now you can paste it where you please. **DOS 101 is now out on hiatus**

If so, there is a shortcut, namely, when the dos box/command prompt window is open, right-menu click on that window, select Mark, then highlight the area you want to copy with the mouse (only line blocks are copied so start at the beginning of the line). When done highlighting, press Enter key and the contents will be copied to your clipboard. Now you can paste it where you please. **DOS 101 is now out on hiatus**
ha, if only i had know this before... because yes, all that code is in fact demonstration of my mad typing skillz. i couldn't find any way to copy the output from the dos window. hopefully next time i will remember that... thank you, DOS 101...
